I have also considered this myself however im in such a small town I wouldnt even no what photographer to go to. I would start by thinking about what he would want to see you in. Just try to keep them classy and not trashy.LOL. Unless you have a large budget for a wardrobe I would start by looking in your closet maybe his favorite shirt or favorite thing he likes you to wear. All of these things would be great just wear them with less than you would in public for a sexy photo.

i am totally considering this! i did some research a few months ago and found that the photographers i really like are super expensive and i don’t really like the less expensive ones….. however, since i really want to do it, i might just have to suck it up and pay!! which photographer are you using, if you don’t midn me asking?

I am! I got a really awesome groupon so its only costing me $40.00. I’ll probably add on to my package which is more money, but I think FH will LOVE it and won’t be expecting it at all 🙂

I did mine about a month ago.  It was so much fun!  I don’t have a lot of experience in front of the camera, but I have secretly wanted to be a model my whole life : )  I posed in front of my mirror a bit before hand so I would know a way ways to hide/accentuate certain areas.

I had 4 changes and this is what I wore:

1) Victoria Secret white and blue bra set with apron garter attachment thing…it had a huge satin ribbon to tie in the back which looked cool.

2) Playboy purple and black bra set with garter attachments…a little sexier than the first (I found it at Marshall’s!)

3) A white tank with a Chargers thong – no bra underneath.  These turned out really great!

4) lacy black undies with no top…just a long strand of pearls.

I was scared to do the partial nude but I kind of wish I had done more.

I already got my book and I can’t wait to give it to Fiance.  The hardest part has been keeping the secret for so long!

Watch out with the fine print on the groupon! Most photographer add a lot of exceptions to those groupon like deals. Boudoir photography is an amazing experience, even if you do it just for yoursel. Its something great to have to look back at.

A great photographer will make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Also, I’ve found that within the industry female photographers are just better at it. At least those that I have come across when networking with other photographers. No offense guys!
